Day 3 - Meyer Sweet Lemons
I discovered Meyer Sweet Lemons as a variety at a grocery store in Florida a couple of years ago. I assumed they were like “regular” lemons when I bought them, and boy was I WRONG. They are far juicier, sweeter, fruitier, and more delicious! I am a fan!!
So when I saw them at Trader Joe’s I was elated! If you see them grab a bag, they go fast and are not often in stock (I have learned that they have a limited season – December/January – May). We use them to squeeze on top of cooked veggies (like broccoli) and as a salad dressing (Meyer lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, and salt).
I hope one day to have my own Meyer Sweet Lemon tree so I can pop outside and pick a fresh one. Until then, I will pick them up whenever I see them at Trader Joe’s.
